Express Lane Plus Posts: 500 Rep: 2 0 A year ago Edited: A year ago, bio_man  Abigail Henderson has ​$ 1440.00 budgeted for spending money on an upcoming trip to Country A and .. Abigail Henderson has ​$1440.00 budgeted for spending money on an upcoming trip to Country A and Country B. Country​ A's currency is trading at ​$1.40 per currency​ A, and Country​ B's currency is trading at ​\$1.60 per currency B. She plans to spend more time in Country​ A, so she wants to have four times as much of currency A as currency B. Set up and solve a system of equations to model this​ problem, and explain what the answer means in practical terms. Complete the equation that represents the total cost of purchasing currency. Let x be the number of currency A and y the number of currency B. Attached file Thumbnail(s): You must login or register to gain access to this attachment. Read 473 times 3 Replies

 Here's how I think you do it. First, set up your equations:$$A = 4B$$$$1.4 A + 1.6 B = 1440$$You end up with a = 800.0b = 200.0So you need 800 worth of country A's currency, and 200 worth of country B's currency, to make 1440 because of conversion rate.
